I can't listen at the moment, is it the same jingles as Roman's show but with Jordan's name? Or completely new sound?  Has he got an into like Greg? 

The intro is very similar to Greg's, I don't know about the other questions because I never listened to Roman.

It's more engaging than I imagined Capital breakfast to be. Like others said, I haven't heard Roman much to compare it. It sounds like Sian and Chris have more leadership on air. 

Even with Roman, Sian and Chris took ownership of a lot of the features with the “senior host” very much anchoring.

Shows how little I listened! There's a lot of music, as per usual, but evidently that's Capital style. It's certainly an easy listen.

Jordan confusing Skepsis and sepsis 🤣

Not sure how many of those we'll get - he seems to have a much more professional stance here.

One thing is clear there's a lot of choice for Radio 1 listeners of a certain age if they did want something different. I could happily listen to Moyles or Jordan, Global's offering has certainly improved.

Do you mean they have a long into like Greg or that actual jingles sounds very much like Greg jingles?

Is there a way to get the "HD" 192kbps stream of Capital on your computer? I'm finding the 48kbps stream hard to listen to. It feels like I'm listing on AM!

Doesn't allow you to rewind to the beginning of the show, but you can listen live

Listening to the whole show it was actually a great fresh listen.  It was very very busy with lots of first show stunts but still little nods to the Jordan we loved on Radio 1.

Also, immediately he feels at ease with Chris and Asian.

He definitely feels more slick and professional though.

It’s a different Jordan North to Vick and Jordan and Chris has matured since Radio 1 hasn’t he?!

It’s definitely all much slicker and more corporate but hints of the old them which might emerge when show is less busy than today.

Personally I'm not a fan of the "Capital Breakfast" sung jingles - sounds very old school, a bit like the "capital breakfast show" sung jingles when the Capital Network first started in ~2011. (Overall I think the Capital production sounds a lot worse with the new voiceovers than it did with Howard Ritchie)

Also, strangely no mention at all of "The UK's number 1 hit music station" on any of the TOHs or out of break jingles. Could Capital be getting ready for a new slogan, trying to fit in more with the older audience they seem to be chasing recently?

It’s more like the pre-2023 long intro of R1 Breakfast - I also prefer that version over the short version they’re currently using.

I hope so, I listened to the whole show. It just seemed like a different Jordan but as you say it was a busy show.

They just wanted a very big song and dance - and it seems they certainly had it with Jordan doing Greatest Showman. Hard to argue with him for taking the job given the resource they've put into the launch!

But agree, will be interested to see how it develops over the coming weeks.

I wasn't able to listen this morning, I'll have to listen back as I'm interested to see what the chemistry was like between Jordan, Chris and Sian. And whether Jordan naturally slid into main presenter mode at a new station.

I just saw the clip of the marching band on Insta, and they really have gone all out for it. It was like a much bigger version of Greg's red arrows when he started his breakfast show.

The town crier was very much a Chris Stark classic I thought, and gave me flashbacks of all those sorts of things he did on Radio 1.

I am a huge fan of Greg, but given how much I miss the pairing of Scott and Chris, if Jordan and Chris turn out to be as good a duo I could be swayed. I wish there was a podcast!

I really don't know which to listen to in the morning, Jordan & Chris or Greg?

    • Radio 1 at Parklife will be presented by Vicky and Nat. Nat is currently listed to present her usual Sunday show on that weekend but I imagine that will change and someone else will be doing it instead. The Radio 1 presenters at Download will be Daniel P Carter, Jack Saunders, Alyx Holcombe and Nels Hylton.
    • Nat in for Dean with Vicky as well that day.
    • So the end of weekend afternoons this week - new show is July 1st.
    • Arielle is in for Greg on Monday 27th May.
    • He’s definitely gotten better and the show has sounded fine this week. I think it been at its best when it’s been Katie and Jamie or Vick and Katie. Vick and Jamie are ok together, but I do think the show sounds better when it’s Vick and Katie and therefore I still don’t really understand the point of the trio.    Jamie is, however, a lot better than Danny Beard! 
    • The RAJAR coming on later this year reflecting later summer to autumn will be interesting to how it reflects Matt and Mollie in afternoons to the revised changes on radio 1’s new music slots and the schedule re-shuffling Radio 3 introducing a new slate of programmes. Then, later on this year have speech radio stations having domestic political coverage of the election but also America’s presidential election.  
    • I actually caught snippets of today’s show, and I found it much better than the last time I listened. I have made it no secret that I like Jamie on the radio, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Matt & him together last year. People have criticised him for not being relatable, but I have to agree with the comment above that I have always found him a naturally warm person to listen to. Maybe the going home set up was something that needed settling in and things are starting to take shape.  It must have been difficult for him joining an established duo in Vick & Katie to begin with.  Jamie was great on something songs today, fully engaged in the caller and sounded like a real presenter. Maybe he is doing as a lot of us hoped and really learning as he goes, how to do it properly. 
    • Agree with this. The anti-Jamie feeling was IMO quite influenced by the negativity around him replacing Jordan, since Jordan was exceptional and also universally loved. When people mention Danny and Jamie in the same sentence about bad hiring decisions I almost choke - Jamie may not be perfect but he's several leagues better than Danny already and has bags of potential. Danny is poor and has shown zero potential...
    • Jamie started 4 March, and the figures only going up to 31 March, so it isn't reliable. But it has shown the numbers have dropped in afternoons compared to last quarter. It looks like it's Capital's gain.
    • Do these audience figures reflect Jordan leaving and Jamie replacing him?
    • I think Jamie is really starting to settle into the role well. He comes across as really warm, and genuinely invested in the listeners when he’s talking to them which is nice. I think he’s building a really great relationship with Vicki and Katie too. His recent great company podcast is great too, where he has quite a deep chat with someone new each week. He’s clearly a very genuine person and I think he has some real potential.
    • Most probably. But do wonder what the future of the relax themed programmes will be when they officially wind down that service.
    • I think it's just to replace Wind Down presents... which was in that timeslot, and I'm guessing Chillout Anthems was just a buffer since it'll still be played at 06:00 on Sundays.
    • With listening on the U.K. for the industry in general it is good overall as most stations reach is on the up and shows radio to be more sustainable and stable outlet than linear televisions channels. This RAJAR I think with the increase shift to DAB+ the BBC will be able to say it has it’s audiences for the proposed new stations it wishes to launch and think the new innovative ideas that it seems Jack himself can take credit for on the new music show think the younger under 30 gen z demographic could increase se in that time-slot. 
    • Conor Knight is in for Sam & Danni on Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th June. It's Radio 1 at Parklife, 13.00-16.00 on Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th June. Matt & Mollie are in for Greg from Monday 10th to Friday 14th June - it's just Matt on the Thursday. It's Radio 1 at Download, 13.00-16.00 on Friday 14th June.
